3.9.6.0 Known issues - Please do not log a ticket if your issue is listed here (24/10/2019)

1) Importing data into an existing series causes an error on completing the import (workaround = import into new series)

2) Key Stage 5 Subject Value Added charts not populating with pupils

3) Importing a Missing Qualification causes an error and fails

4) Using the Set Prior Attainment Band option in Edit Markbook for current Y11 is not working as expected


 What is the Progress 8 View/Change Coefficients option and how should I use it?

Solution

Use this function to increase or decrease the Attainment 8 estimates by a percentage. This feature has been added in order to aid with the tracking of future cohorts and prepare for best and worst case scenarios. Adjusting the coefficients here is only a temporary change (until you close the window or exit 4Matrix). The adjustment factor will be determined at the schools discretion. 

If you wish to make the changes permanent for any particular series you can do so via Edit Series. Select the Series you are working with and use the Adjust By field. Users may find it beneficial to duplicate the series first and apply different adjustment factors to each version to quickly see the effect that this on their Progress 8 scores. Setting the Series Visibility to Admin will hide any provisional series from general staff and SLT users.
